Quiraing Portree
#1 of 27 Nature & Parks in Isle of Skye
It’s definitely worth the trip (although we were just very fortunate to find a place to park) as very busy with tourists taking shots during some excellent weather we were lucky enough to experience during our for...
The Quiraing is stunning and it's beautiful to walk the several kilometer route along it, from the unofficial car park over towards the port town on the other side of some of the peaks.

Loch Coruisk Elgol
#2 of 27 Nature & Parks in Isle of Skye
The stairs at the dock and climbing on and off the boat are a little challenge for those less able, but this location is a great way to get off the beaten path and be in nature without hiking up a steep boggy trail.
A stunning location to sit and contemplate, to explore and enjoy nature.

Neist Point Glendale
#3 of 27 Nature & Parks in Isle of Skye
The peace that embraces you when you stand high above the lighthouse is immense, the incredible force of Nature that raptures you is indescribable, go visit the Neist Point as soon as you can!
We walked along the headland from the car park to start with until we could see the lighthouse (and the outer Hebrides in the distance it was so clear) and we sat and had our picnic, truly an amazing location to s...

Wear the right gear - especially important will be: sturdy mountain/hiking boots, plenty of layers, waterproofs and a day sack (at least!) - for although the climb looks basic from the car park, you can easily enc...
Probably more sensible to just stick to the path Lovely views probably best done on a sunny day, then visit a little car park just along the road with more great views and then kilt rock just down the road,

There's many places to pull over or park your car for a while and walk or take photos.
In summer very tough to find space in the car parks and viewing areas as they're all full.

The beach is a good 30 min walk from the small car park, but it is well worth the walk, seals were swimming only metres from the shore which adds to this memorable experience.
Lovely place - pure water, clean beach, fabulous views around - takes about 10 minutes nice walk from the car park

Life is too short and beautiful places in nature are must see places if you're lucky to see them I gave the Pools a full five rating because it was amazing, beautiful, unbelievable view up and across from many spots.
we arrived at about 1130am and weather was warm and calm and the car park was full , in the distance you can see the trail and the people all walking along it , the walk is all gravel and easy to walk , though mak...
Talisker Beach Talisker
#8 of 27 Nature & Parks in Isle of Skye
One of the slightly off the beaten track walks in Skye - around 25 minute walk from the Car Park (lay by), but well worth the effort.
Car park and picnic tables made this spot amazing and a lovely coffee shop to purchase coffee or tea.
#9 of 27 Nature & Parks in Isle of Skye
Make sure you stop for twenty minutes at the free car park to see this fantastic waterfall plunging over the cliff and the lovely Kilt Rock cliffs in the distance.
Very easy to get to just off the main road, this little park was awesome views of the nearby islands and the northern mountains of Scotland across the bay.

The gardeners that we encountered were friendly, knowledgeable and approachable An added bonus is the café across the road from the castle grounds (by the car park), which offers a decent range of light meals.
Very interesting place to visit, steeped in clan history with lots to see plus nice gardens and tea room/gift shop in car park

It is a stunning hike, even in the middle of summer, you are alone in the greatness of Nature.
There is a car park just before it descends Brogaig and there are easy walks to the north and south along the ridge.

Portree Harbour Portree
#12 of 27 Nature & Parks in Isle of Skye
We went on a nature trail at the back of the lump and the views were spectacular, the Old Man of Storr to the north and the Cullins to the south.
Portree Harbour is very picturesque and is worth a few minutes' walk from the free main long stay car park

Inaccessible by road, and 2.5 miles on foot from the car park at Aird with a few steep hills and about 1000 feet of ascent are the White Sands of Sleat.
The ferry from Mallaig arrives at Armadale Ferry Terminal and after 400 yards there is a single track road to the left which takes you through Aird of Sleat to a small car park.
Lealt Falls Portree
#14 of 27 Nature & Parks in Isle of Skye
It may be a pretty view today from the viewing area a short walk from the car park, but to me the intriguing part is that 40 plus locals were once employed in the mining, processing and export of Diatomite from th...

Wonderful hidden waterfall, the path can be a little muddy after rain but the falls are stunning, walk back from the car park outside the police station up the main road out of Uig and follow the sign for Uig wood...
Immediately after that there is a cul-de-sac to the left called Park Terrace/Corbett terrace.
